  4. Establishing a DoD Engineering Center of Excellence Industry • OSD Software Engineering and System Assurance • Support Acquisition Success • Improve State-of-the-Practice of Engineering • Leadership, Outreach and Advocacy • Foster Resources to Meet DoD Needs DoD-Wide Partnerships National Partnerships DoD Center of Excellence International/Global Alliances University Consortia

  5. Recap of Activities • Documented software issues, needs • Software Industrial Base Study completed • NDIA Top Software Issues Workshop Report • Defense Software Strategy Summit Report • Created partnerships • Established network of DoD software POCs • Chartered the NDIA Software Committee and Expert Panel • Bi-weekly software collaboration exchanges with Government, Academia, and Industry • Restructured the US-UK-AUS Trilateral Working Group • Performed gap analysis • Identified ongoing software initiatives; mapped them to issue areas • Two outcomes: • Identified initiatives that deserve cross-DoD attention • Identified gaps where attention is needed Common Goal: Provide visibility to key initiatives; Focus attention on gaps

  6. Top Software Issues* • The impact of requirements upon software is not consistently quantified and managed in development or sustainment. • Fundamental system engineering decisions are made without full participation of software engineering. • Software life-cycle planning and management by acquirers and suppliers is ineffective. • The quantity and quality of software engineering expertise is insufficient to meet the demands of government and the defense industry. • Traditional software verification techniques are costly and ineffective for dealing with the scale and complexity of modern systems. • There is a failure to assure correct, predictable, safe, secure execution of complex software in distributed environments. • Inadequate attention is given to total lifecycle issues for COTS/NDI impacts on lifecycle cost and risk. *NDIA Top Software Issues Workshop August 2006

  7. DoD Software -- What We’re Seeing* • Software systemic issues are significant contributors to poor program execution • Software requirements not well defined, traceable, testable • Immature architectures, COTS integration, interoperability, obsolescence (electronics/hardware refresh) • Software development processes not institutionalized, planning documents missing or incomplete, reuse strategies inconsistent • Software test/evaluation lacking rigor and breadth • Schedule realism (compressed, overlapping) • Lessons learned not incorporated into successive builds • Software risks/metrics not well defined, managed *Based on ~65 program reviews to date

  8. DoD Software Challenges Challenges • System Complexity – DoD systems are software intensive, upwards of 90% of functionality controlled by software • Net-centric – DoD systems must interoperate in a net-centric environment • Changing operational threat – user need changes well inside of typical acquisition cycle times Software Role • Software is an enabler for systems to overcome the challenges -- cannot treat it as a standalone element of the system… • Yet, we find software continues to be separate from the systems engineering practices Solution • How do we encourage the behavior to overcome this issue? • Knowledge and awareness (ie. PM, milestone decision authority, chief SE) • Processes and tools (ie. Standards, development environments, SE technical practices)

  9. Project Summary: Integrating Systems and Software Engineering • Statement of Work • Evaluate current DoD SysE, SwE processes and standards • Identify deltas, issue areas, recommendations • Evaluate ICM for integration applicability • Evaluate relevant DoD guidance, education, and training • Provide recommendations based on evaluations • Key Milestones • October 19. Draft Results to Date briefing • October 29-30. USC Workshop • December 31. Final Report

  10. Overcoming the software challenges Can we answer questions: • How much programmatic risk are we taking on with respect to software? • How is our SE planning considering SW in schedule, technical reviews, etc? • How is our design making SW/HW trades? • Initial trades • Requirements changes over time Warnings for this Workshop… • Don’t solve the greater Congressional and DoD acquisition issues • Don’t get lost in SoS definitions and Governance issues Focus on • What the engineering community can do to keep our leadership informed of SW risk and opportunity • Making sure SE/SW is a cohesive approach throughout all technical and management practices

  11. IS&SE Workshop Objectives: Identify • Biggest issues and opportunities • In technology • In management • Inhibitors to progress and how to overcome them • What’s working • What could work? • What else is needed • Technology/management research • Education and training • Regulations, specifications and standards • Other? What is the right approach to better integration of SE and SW across the lifecycle?
